Swipe Out Hunger:
Young Professional Board Membership
We are currently seeking individuals with a demonstrated interest in fighting food insecurity to join Swipe Out Hunger’s newly established Young Professional Board (YPB).
About Swipe Out Hunger
Swipe Out Hunger is a non-profit based in Los Angeles that partners with universities nationwide to end student hunger. The organization provides both innovative and common sense solutions to food insecurity on college campuses. Swipe Out Hunger’s premiere program allows college students to donate their extra meal credits to support food insecure students on campus.
The organization has been called a “Champion of Change” by President Obama and its CEO was recognized on Forbes' 30 Under 30 list for the program’s impact. Today, Swipe Out Hunger operates in 19 states and has served 1.4 million meals. In 2017 Swipe Out Hunger helped write and pass the trailblazing “Hunger Free Campus” bill, which led to a $7.5 million fund to alleviate hunger at public colleges in California.
About the Young Professional Board
The Swipe Out Hunger YPB is a group of talented, diverse individuals committed to supporting the organization through raising funds and awareness in support of the organization’s mission to end student hunger.
